I have a blog so I can share family news with others. But also so I can get things off my chest in the middle of the day without having to call anybody. Like when I see pictures like this in the newspaper:
This girl had 8 limbs!! And it is not a trick with Photoshop. I thought that was crazy when I saw it a few months ago. But yesterday I saw a picture of this:
This girl has two faces! And she eats out of both mouths (which will not bode well for any childhood obesity studies). The interesting thing is that both of these girls are from India. This is probably a fortunate thing since the Hindus are treating these impairments as blessings rather than disfigurments as we probably would in America.
But isn't it more fun to see these anomalies and share them with someone? Hub has always left for work by the time I read the paper and so I show the boys and hope they will share my awe. But they have seen more interesting creatures on Scooby-Doo so aren't easily impresed.
And the last thing I want to share is in regards to polygamy. Due to the raid in Eldorado, TX, this issue is once more hot. Don't we all love to analyze what it would be like to be in that type of a situation? What if I had a few sister-wives? I would be the boss of course, and they would be the ones to cook and clean. They would have to be more homely than me so there wasn't any competition in THAT area and hopefully we could find some stylish long dresses to share.
Seriously though, I have seen interviews with intelligent polygamist women who honestly seem to cherish their relationships with the 'other' women. They have a strong support system and their children will be raised in more secure homes than a lot of kids in mainstream America. But the sects that marry off girls once they hit puberty.....horrible.
Those are my issues for today. Back to the exciting family pics later.
